Small magnitude 3.1 earthquake 11 miles southwest of Bakersfield, California, United States
3.1 quake 27 May 7:19 am (GMT -7)
3.1 quake 27 May 7:19 am (GMT -7)
A shallow magnitude 3.1 earthquake was reported in the morning near Bakersfield, Kern County, California, USA.
According to the United States Geological Survey, the quake hit on Thursday 27 May 2021 at 7:19 am local time at a shallow depth of 12 miles. Shallow earthquakes are felt more strongly than deeper ones as they are closer to the surface. The exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the quake might be revised within the next few hours or minutes as seismologists review data and refine their calculations, or as other agencies issue their report.
Our monitoring service identified a second report from the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) which listed the quake at magnitude 3.1 as well.
Towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Rosedale (pop. 14,100) located 6 miles from the epicenter, Greenacres (pop. 5,600) 7 miles away, Bakersfield (pop. 373,600) 11 miles away, Oildale (pop. 32,700) 13 miles away, and Shafter (pop. 18,300) 14 miles away. In Lamont (pop. 15,100, 17 miles away), Wasco (pop. 26,300, 21 miles away), Arvin (pop. 20,900, 22 miles away), and Delano (pop. 52,700, 32 miles away), the quake was probably not felt.
